Ready? Meet the whole gang below: 

Teta Melo (@tetatomato)

Who says you can’t be a content creator and make music at the same time? Well, that’s exactly what encapsulates 22-year-old Teta! When she isn’t composing her own songs, this indie artist constantly shifts her style depending on her mood, but you can always bet she’ll stan hard for Billie Eilish and Jean Damas.

What is something you think everyone should do once in their lives?

Have a pet. Adopt if you can!

Sight-seeing or shopping?

SHOPPING!

Your life as a movie title.

Gone With the 27 Items In Her Shopping Cart.

Iya Omaña (@louiseiya)

Calling all morenas! Better pay attention because Iya Omaña’s here to inspire you to flaunt your dusky skin. As a beauty junkie, she loves creating makeup looks that highlight her complexion. Stay tuned for her fashion, too, because she’s into minimalist looks we know you love.

Favorite hobby.

Doing my makeup, dressing up, then taking photos! Quarantine content for now, haha!

You're going to get stuck on an island with the cast of the last series you watched. What show is it?

It's Okay to Not Be Okay. It's going to be chaotic but definitely fun! I'll surely ask for styling tips from Ms. Ko Moon-young. All of her looks were just WOW!

Wardrobe piece you can't live without.

MY HIGH-WAISTED BAGGY JEANS! Haha! Yes, I love to be specific when it comes to my jeans. Also never forget, "You're cute jeans!"—Kendall Jenner. Haha, iconic!

Yma Cuervo (@yma_crow)

If there’s anyone in the group who’ll inspire you to embrace your personal style, it’s Yma Cuervo. As a plus-sized model, Yma believes that representation in the fashion industry is important. That's why she advocates for body positivity through her fabulous Instagram posts. You’ll love her penchant for bold colors and hubadera clothing!

All-time favorite movie.

I could watch and rewatch Moulin Rouge. It's a musical, it’s over the top, and it has a great story and a brilliant cast!

If you could have dinner with anybody in the world dead or alive who would it be?

Gordon Ramsey. That would mean the food would have to be really good. If it isn't, I get a front row seat to hear his colorful critique.

Food you hate but everyone else loves.

Hmm... It isn't something that everyone loves, but something I will probably never eat is frog!

Gaps (@patriciagapay)

Annyeong! 20-year-old content creator Patricia Gapay or “Gaps” for short, is a self-confessed lover of all things K-culture. We’re sure you can relate to her love for K-dramas like Crash Landing on You and My ID is Gangnam Beauty! This multimedia arts student is also obsessed with pastel colors and Y2K fashion. Did we mention she's a dancer, too?

Favorite hobby.

My top three are dancing, watching kdrama, and creating YouTube videos.

You’re going to get stuck on an island with the cast of the last series you watched. What show is it?

It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.

Wardrobe piece you can’t live without.

Definitely wide-leg, high-waisted jeans!!

Abby Muñoz (@whiteandweird)

“Can you spell Gabbana?” is a line that Abby Muñoz would never, ever ask. As a fashion-loving 22-year-old Abby keeps herself updated with trends but has a special place in her heart for the fashion of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Did we mention she also watches fashion history videos on YouTube for fun?

What’s the last song you listened to?

“Once Upon a December” from Anastasia (Original Broadway Cast Recording).

Favorite color or color combos.

My absolute favorite colors (at the moment) are lime green, some shade of bright green and lavender! These two colors are actually my favorite color combo to wear. I also tend to buy too many things in these two colors. I love ‘em too much!

What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

Oh my gosh! I've actually done this before. I'd have to choose two topics: musicals or Anne of Green Gables (including a complete reenactment by me).

Paui Azarcon (@axarconpaui)

Someone better call Netflix because 19-year-old Paui Azarcon is the gal who’s most likely to star in Cheer—but make it fashion. You’ll flip for this cheerleader’s edgy style that draws inspiration from girls like Gigi Hadid and Nava Rose. With her mom jeans and oversized tees, she’ll prove that fashion is all about self-expression.

Last thing you ordered online.

Tank tops in different colors.

Who’s your spirit animal?

Heiheithe chicken from the movie Moana.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

Definitely sushi!

Dan Soliman (@dan.soliman)

In this fast-paced world, there’s value in slowing down, and that’s exactly what artist Dan Soliman stands for through her macramé crafts. She even pays it forward by making tutorials on her YouTube channel! Her minimalist approach translates to her style as well—Dan loves a clean, timeless look.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Travel alone! I remember how I spontaneously booked a flight to Taiwan. It was liberating. Felt like I was Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love

Sight-seeing or shopping?

Sight-seeing. I'm trying to practice sustainable living, and shopping nowadays takes so much time as I want to make sure that each piece that I acquire is something I would use for a long period of time.

Your life as a movie title.

Waking Life because this is one of my favorite movies and I am a Richard Linklater fan!

Ryan Kyle (@ryanxkylee)

If a K-pop song is on, you can bet that Ryan will be turning up the volume! As a die-hard K-pop fan, Ryan creates beauty and art content that is inspired by everything Hallyu. This liberal arts major has also got a passion for skincare, and we can’t blame him—skin is in after all.

All-time favorite movie.

Big Hero 6. I super love this film not only because Hiro (the main character) is voiced by Ryan Potter but because the entire film's plot just hits me right in the core as it involves topics about love, family, friendship, betrayal, death, and truth.

Food you hate but everyone else loves.

This is quite a shocker but I dislike fruits! My mom would say that I used to love oranges and watermelons as a baby but I really don't know why I don't like fruits in general anymore! But wait, by fruits I meant the actual fruits. I still drink a lot of juice!

If you could have dinner with anybody in the world dead or alive who would it be?

I would pick Australian YouTuber-singer-songwriter Troye Sivan. I discovered Troye when I first heard his smash hit "Youth” on a Snapchat Story back in the summer of 2016. He is the one of the reasons why I've finally accepted myself as a person back when I was still a little lost.

It’s also apparent across her YouTube and TikTok accounts where she makes fun makeup videos.

Mia Rieza (@miafranzgelicka)

Fashion and beauty are all about feeling fabulous in your own skin, and this is something that Mia has learned to embrace in her journey to self-confidence. This education major may have encountered obstacles along the way, but now, she isn’t afraid of expressing her true self! To wit, she boldly shares her makeup creations and is slaying it as a plus-sized model!

Fashion Week? That’s a huge possibility for 22-year-old accessories designer Mae Fuentebella, who was previously a fashion design and merchandising student. Her sartorial acumen, coupled with her innate eye for fashion, is what fuels her desire to keep creating. Project Runway better watch out for this gal!

My fave color is Dusty rose pink. My fave color combo  is black and white or all white!

How I got interested in fashion and how I developed my personal style. It took me a long time to get to know what my personal style is.

Janny Miranda (@jannymrnda)

Brows on fleek? Please, Janny Miranda can do that and more! As a beauty junkie, this 20-year-old nursing student loves practicing her hand at makeup artistry. She also knows her beauty brands from local faves like Colourette to international hits like Anastasia Beverly Hills. To make her aesthetic pop, Janny dresses in cool duds inspired by edgy minimalism. So on point!

My mom's oil-based pasta with pink salmon, sun-dried tomatoes, and broccoli.

Yasmeen Al Fardy (@ysmnaaaa)

Fuss-free is the name of the game for 25-year-old Yasmeen Al Fardy. She believes that comfort is king and loves dressing in foolproof items like jeans, cropped tops, and sneakers. FYI, Yasmeen is also a licensed dentist! When the need arises, she switches her kicks for heels to look professional. Now that’s how you combine form and function!

Last thing you ordered online.

W.Dressroom perfume and a pair of gray tartan pants from an online ukay Instagram shop which was a really lucky find!

Who's your spirit animal?

I would like to say a panda, since we both have dark circles, and we love to eat and sleep. LOL!

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

For free and without gaining weight? Haha! I'm gonna be vague and just say salmon, because it's versatile and delicious. But if I were to be specific, definitely Yabu's Salmon Katsu. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

Jeska Sta. Teresa (@entanglemeant)

Boring? Please. Jeska only lives a fun and fearless life, which definitely translates to her bold beauty looks and amazing hair. This 21-year-old not only advocates for body positivity, but sustainability as well—she’s into ukay-ukay shopping! If there’s a word that could best describe her makeup vibe though, it would have to be snatched. You get the picture!

Favorite hobby.

I've been trying to get more into yoga! Hopefully I stay on track, I've been loving it so far, other than that I'd say walking....

You’re going to get stuck on an island with the cast of the last series you watched. Which show is it?

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

I can't remember which one I watched last but Selling Sunset and The Good Place (Janette will keep us safe). Sounds great to me!

Wardrobe piece you can’t live without.

Tubes or tight tops, skirts, and button-downs! Or, a tight button-down dress, yes! Something easy to put on, move and breath in!

Reins Mika (@reinsmika)

If there’s anyone in the Clique who’s most likely to join a modeling competition, it has to be Mika! This 21-year-old student from the Ateneo de Manila University has been modeling for 3 years. She’s even got a slew of cool projects under her belt! Oh, and she’s quite the artist behind the camera, too: She’s into illustrating, sketching, animations, and video editing.

All-time favorite movie.

Gone with The Wind, She’s All That, Roman Holiday, My Fair Lady, Grease… and a lot more! I really love old classic rom-com movies especially watching them with my mom.

Food you hate but everyone else loves.

I guess a lot of people will hate me for this but I hate anything spicy. My family loves spicy food, but I really can't take it!

If you could have dinner with anybody in the world dead or alive who would it be?

My great grandparents. I’ve never met them, but I’ve heard many stories about them told by my parents.
